Christ In His Mysteries

The Price of Holy Freedom – A Ceaseless Struggle of Renewal

Our interior life here below is known only to God; it is hidden to the eyes of men.  Further, if through our spiritual freedom we strive to reproduce in our souls the characteristics of the risen life of Jesus, it is nevertheless a labor which still operates in a flesh that is wounded by sin and subject to the infirmities of time.  We shall only arrive at that holy freedom at the price of a struggle ceaselessly renewed and faithfully sustained.  We, too, must suffer so as to enter into glory.   Page 345
